United States
Liam Sharp is the co-founder and CCO of Madefire, as well as an artist, writer and publisher. www.madefire.com

He made his debut in the late 1980s drawing Judge Dredd for 2000ad. He later moved to Marvel UK, where he drew the best-selling Marvel UK title ever, Death's Head II. Thereafter he began working mainly in the United States on books as diverse as the X-Men, the Hulk, Spider-Man, Venom, Man-Thing (for Marvel Comics), Superman, Batman, and The Possessed (for DC Comics and Wildstorm), Spawn: The Dark Ages (for Todd McFarlane and Image) and Red Sonja for Dynamite comics.
Liam has also worked on more mature themed books for Verotik, drawing Frank Frazetta's The Death Dealer, and a strip originated by Stan Winston called Realm of the Claw.

In 2004 Liam established MamTor™ Publishing with wife Christina. This saw the launch of the critically acclaimed and award-winning anthology Event Horizon, and the prestigious collaboration with Mother (London) Advertising, Four Feet From a Rat, which appeared as a quarterly comic in Time Out magazine. This led to work on three major advertising campaigns for the Coca-Cola Company, art and design work for Strange Beast, Passion Pictures, Knuckleheads, Shots magazine and Red Arrow Entertainment amongst others.

Liam also worked on designs for the movies Lost in Space, Small Soldiers and the animated series Batman Beyond.

More recent work includes co-creating the controversial DC/Vertigo title Testament with best-selling novelist and media commentator Douglas Rushkoff, the comic adaptation of the seminal XBox game Gears of War for Wildstorm, and the graphic novella Aliens: Fast Track to Heaven for Dark Horse.

Liam's critically acclaimed first novel GOD KILLERS: MACHIVARIUS POINT & OTHER TALES was published in 2008 with a second edition in 2009.

For Madefire he is currently working on an epic personal project that he is co-writing with wife Christina McCormack called Captain Stone is Missing... as well as writing MONO, and co-producing art with Bill Sienkiewicz for a series of Sherlock Holmes stories.
Interests
Well. That certainly was an AMAZING convention. There's nothing quite like the San Diego Comic Convention. It's the greatest show on earth.

For now, though, it's time to recover, and to think about what it all means. It's impossible to capture in a journal all in one go - there's simply too much to process! So I'll get back to you once I've wrapped my head around it all.

Meanwhile - there's somebody I'd like you to know about that doesn't get the acknowledgement she deserves.

She's one of the best - if not THE best - collaborators I've ever worked with.

She has read everything I've written as a script or book back to me, helping me hear the mistakes, the problems, the places where I was hitting my stride, and other places where I was not.

She has co-created many stories with me, often coming up with the heart of the concept out of which I could extrapolate whole worlds. 

She has researched for me, so that I know I have accurate information, dates and details.

She co-created Captain Stone.

With John Bamber and I she started a publishing company called Mam Tor, for which she oversaw all the production - the schedules, the payments, the advertising, the paper stock, the distribution, the pagination, the bar codes, the delivery, the printing.

She has been my biggest supporter, the voice of reason, the one that got me through all my darkest days.

Without her there would be no Madefire.

Thank you, Christina McCormack. You mean everything to me.
